[ laughter ] >> so that was just part of a long and memorable primary season. juan, is that your highlight of the year. [ laughter ] >> my highlight? it is telling again fo
and the mayor's office has helped us and jim where are you? he's the private sector liaison and thank you for all your har work. i appreciate it. i want to talk about the efficacy of this partnership. we hold a drill every year. and in two 000 at on california and 2009 at ferry building and vacated it in the morning and when bart was going to strike and we were ready and ten on mid-market and this year two fire drills and the chief's wife is here and her team was spectacular and the they had two drills and i will show you a video in a minute. why do we do that? why do we have our member dos that? because we want to test that response plan because it's no good on paper unless you test it and we do that. we run drills and it takes about a drill to do, to plan. we work with the public sector agency and it was the fire department and next year alsolet fire department and we had drills with the police department swat and a day long drill and you name the emergency we probably planned for it, and i am not here to brag. i am here to tell you these drills help and we can't do that without
in jim clancy. i want to start with the government attacks today in and around damascus. what is the government's goal here? >> the government is extremely concerned. they're losing their grip on the suburbs of the capital. all of this is within ear shot of the presidential palace. but it is really -- i think it is only fair to say it to admit what is going on here. they are targeting civilians in whatever numbers they can find. the regime obviously frustrated, they have not been able to strike with any significant effect on the free syrian army, on the rebel and opposition groups and they have turned to civilians who are lining up, whether it is for bread or whether it is for fuel, some 75 people known to have been killed in this incident alone. it reflects the pattern that we're seeing here, don. a pattern of increased casualties. we were looking at a thousand casualties a month at one point. and now it is probably more than a thousand a week. we have been well over 100 for almost as long as i can remember. >> in announcing its analysis of the human toll of the war, the u.n.
the senate the resignation of jim demint of south carolina which shall be printed in the record. mr. reid: mr. president i now ask unanimous consent the senate proceed to executive session and the "help" committee be discharged from further consideration of presidential nomination 1404 and that the senate proceed to vote without intervening action or debate on the nomination, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table with no intervening action or debate and that no further statements be in order to the nomination, that any statements related to this matter be printed in the record and the president be immediately notified of the senate's action. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent the foreign relations committee be discharged from further consideration of presidential nominations 1928 and 1951. that the nominations be confirmed, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table with no intervening action or debate, that no further motions be in order to the nominations that any related statements be printed in the
been going on for years in iowa, my friend, former colleague, jim leech and i had written about that. it's happening in california, in arizona, even a little bit in florida. that is part of the problem. nationally they got more than a million more votes than republicans who ran for the house of representatives. yet they come into this with a 5-vote margin and there are some areas where in north carolina there were more votes for democrats than republicans but there are only 20 -- 27% of the representatives are democrats. it confuses the notion of mandate. the president won decisively, the president picked up ground and we had a million more votes nationwide for the house of representatives. that doesn't sound like much of a national mandate to continue the policies of the republicans over the last decade or so. host: let's go to the republican line, david from ohio. i would love to be able to buy my children ferraris or the president kept on saying he wanted a balanced attack. to this problem. which i agree that you had to increase the revenues, but you also got to address the spendi
gone up. guest: i guess that's one way to look at it, sure. host: let's go to floral city, florida. jim on the republicans line. caller: good morning. i don't so much have a question but a comment. i feel that most of the conversation in washington is about money and it's more, more, more, more. they're going to waste every dime they get. so the problem i consider is that they have too much money. not that they have too little. they don't need more. if we were to update our computer system we could probably do 60% to 70% of our governmental business on a computer and let the people run it instead of our bureaucrats. it just makes no sense. i've only heard just a very few words regarding the fact that they spend too much money. guest: we do. we spend too much money. and unfortunately you're absolutely right. we don't hear that enough and for that reason that was the reason we got the compromise last night. enough people are willing to look the other way on the spending. again, i understand the folks who voted for it. both democrats and republicans alike. they don't want to go over the cl
for this country. host: we move on to jim in fort myers, fla. caller: thank you for taking my call. what is your suggestions to solve these problems? are you still for the electoral college system? how will you improve the campaign financing? i would like to hear what you thought after all of your research. guest: there are a few different ways to go. i do not advocate a particular policy position, but there are some implications. in terms of fund-raising, it is a result of low contribution limits, with rapidly rising campaign costs. if you favor the public system, you will want to revamp its note it offers a larger pool -- so it offers a larger pool to opt in. that would limit the amount of time presidents have to campaign. you might see the problem is the contribution limit. contribution limits on the amount of money you can give are small relative to the amount of money it takes to run a campaign. you might say to raise the contribution limits. with the electoral college, if it were abolished and we elect our presidents through a national popular vote, you could have a lively debate. voters i
's national political correspondent, jim acosta, is joining us more with this part of the story. what are you picking up? what votes are offering some clues? >> this is what everybody was watching, right? besides the votes as to whether or not it would pass, as to who was going to vote what on this. and while much of washington was peering just over the edge of the fiscal cliff, and looking into the abyss below, a select few politicians were keeping their eyes on the horizon, to the campaign cliff of 2016. gop ticket in 2012, and as a potential contender in 2016. but paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee, was nearly invisible in the run-up to the fiscal cliff. ryan finally voted yes and then slipped out of the capital, chatting briefly with cnn off-camera. >> if you want a bill that passed, you should vote for it. >> why did you want it to pass? >> i'm not afraid of anything. i think it should pass. >> one reason for his stealth performance, conservative activists are outraged by what happened. taxes going up, mostly on wealthier americans, while the automatic spending cuts we
